Thanks Italophile The times I have had BER it has usually been ones from the first truss, the ones you are really looking forward to Being the first truss they are more likely to have experienced a bigger range of climatic conditions than later ones. May/ June weather can be so changeable, roasting some days and single figures the next and overnight mild, or blinking cold. I grow mine in buckets and when I worked it had to be best guess as to how much water they would need through the day, same with what to do with GH door. Much easier now. Also easier as having followed your advice from last year they no longer get mollycoddled.
I've not had any problem with plum, cherry or beef ones, just ordinary sized ones.
As you say we must assume some genetics involved.
